“Hidden coves and stunning views”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Take the Route de la Baie from Cancale to St. Malo and you will find this beautiful area of rocky cliffs, hidden beaches and stunning scenery. Little paths take you down onto beaches tucked between the black rocks - we had them all to ourselves sometimes. Lovely views out to sea and along the Emerald Coast to Mont St. Michel.

“Breathtaking views and wonderful walk”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

A great spot to stop for half an hour or half a day. Many people had brought picnic blanket and breads and were laying in the sun. The walks are beautiful and easy. Lots of places have steep cliff faces so need to be mindful and keep smaller children in check. Lovely piece of a nature reserve. Two restaurants and a souvenir shop there too.

“Excellent walk - a must do from Cancale!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Came across this lovely little area by mistake and decided to park and walk around - was a very pleasant interlude - great scenery and a little history thrown in...

We liked the look of the hotel and restaurant and came back in the evening for dinner - that was an even better idea!

“à ne pas manquer”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Absolutely stunning. Definitely leave time for the walk long the coast (or at least part of it). The walk is not too difficult and clearly marked, but we went in the pre-season and cannot even imagine the crowds and the parking during high season.

“Beautiful views and walk...”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Well worth a visit, parking was OK and a lovely walk past the Hotel and Café Bar around the Pointe; stunning views and some sheer drops! Coffee at the café looking out over the sea very relaxing. Could perhaps get busy in the summer months.
